A Mongmong man was arrested by Port Police Tuesday morning after officers found drugs and drug paraphernalia during routine patrol.

Port Police Officer K.R. Maurer was conducting routine patrol at 7:40 a.m. when she noticed a car and some individuals near Port Beach in Piti.

Officer Maurer stopped to do a welfare check on the occupants and discovered a glass pipe with drug residue along with a plastic baggie which allegedly contained crystal methamphetamine, also known as “ice.”

Gregory San Agustin, 28, of Mongmong was booked and released in connection with
possession of a schedule 2 controlled substance.

“I want to commend Acting Police Chief Jesse Mendiola for his leadership and the
officers who worked on this case,” said Port General Manager Rory J. Respicio. “We
remain vigilant in keeping the Port safe and drug-free.”
